Internet problem mystery.

Netgear Router.

I have a desktop connected via Ethernet to a Netgear wireless router & for the last 6 weeks I have had frustrating Internet & email connection issues. The problem has occurred every day & nearly always between about 11.30am-2pm. Basically sending & receiving emails results in error messages & IE is unable to display web pages. Usually continuous clicking send/receive for emails or refresh for the net eventually seems to force the desired result. It does happen at other times of the day but less so. Additionally I have a laptop connected wirelessly & a further desktop via an Ethernet & both remain completely unaffected.

I have fiddled with cables & regularly run malware scans so I know these are not the causes.

To add to the mystery Firefox also gives blank results. However, today purely by chance I seemed to get an improvement in IE8 utilising the Compatibility feature. This of course does not explain the email issue or Firefox.

Any ideas gratefully received.
